Made me smiling! Great view! BR Gruß Joerg

This is an attractive image indeed! I see here at least 12 people in the offices, but one bike, and to whom it belongs is an interesting imagination. The light from meeting room is beautiful and the meeting room as such is a nice contrast to the single bike. Well done and presented.

I like this one alot, too. The bike is a bonus.  Well done!  ~~~~~L

Adventskalender! Good initial concept and realization. Compliments!

Wolfgang Arnold

Many thanks for all your encouraging comments. @Michael: you have a point about the top window - would require some retouching as next windows were overlapping.

cheers, Wolfgang

Micheal Kraml

this is cool.  The geometrical shapes.  The bike is a nice touch.  I think I would prefer to see the top window whole.  Cheers, Micheal

Very, very interesting shot, Wolfgang. Well seen!

Kind regards,


Mehmet Akin

This is a masterpiece...congrats

Andrea de Bonis

perfectly done, and compliments for your eye. very rigorous, a geometry interrupted by life

Ruud Albers

A beautiful shot, very nicely composed, Wolfgang!

I might not have taken the photo if the bike hadn't been there (and I didnt't question its presence so far), so your opinion opens a new "view" on my photo for me.

Yet, pondering about on your idea, I think, without the bike, the photo would be too flat and two-dimensional. The bike represents the outside world opposing the interior. The issue is probably rather its colour, which doesn't really optimally harmonizes (or rather contrasts) to the prevailing hues. 

So, though I might rather leave the bike: big thanks for your comment! It's far more helpful if ideas are challenged I can rethink my decisions (and potentially change).

cheers, Wolfgang

Great observation, particularly for the interesting and dynamic geometry and the colour harmonies of the buiding and its interiors. I find the bike a bit too much and inconsistent with the rest of the composition. I prefer the image without it.
